The sausage is amazing, however, we did not like the mac and cheese. It tasted like the kind we used to get in school!


Oh wow! Butterball doesn't mess around when it comes to recipes. I loved it! Would definately suggest you try it. The only change I would suggest is a mix of cheddars in place of the sharp cheddar and reduce the velveeta to 2 cups instead of 3, and using 2 jars of Alfredo sauce instead of all the velveeta. The velveeta really covered those great complex cheese flavors. The corkscrew pasta was a wonderful touch!

I was really surprised by this recipe (cut it in half for our family size.) For me it was a quick fix while running behind tonight. Both the boys and my husband enjoyed it (he'd die if he knew Alfredo was in it!) Would like to try it again with homemade Alfredo and different cheeses. But for a once and awhile meal that doesn't take long, this will come in handy. Also really enjoyed the sausage itself!
